Short review

The 7th Annual Wilmington Historic Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will take place on Saturday December 7th, 2024. Starting in the heart of downtown, runners will take a beautiful, closed course through the streets as they see the true southern beauty in Historic Wilmington, North Carolina.  After 2.5 miles of downtown running, the 5K splits off to the boardwalk to finish while the Half Marathon will continue straight over 3 bridges and around a scenic lake before finishing down one of the nation's top-rated boardwalks! The 10K splits after the 3rd bridge and heads down the boardwalk to the finish line!   Packet Pick-Up:  Friday 12/6. Location TBD.   Lodging:  TBD

 

Start Times:   7:00 AM- 5K; 7:30 AM- 10K; 7:45 AM- Half Marathon (No Late Starts)
